I don't think Jason Roe ("Will Rogers simply jealous of Rogan," June 15) should get so disturbed about Will Rogers' comments over James Rogan. Rogers is an investigative reporter, who digs out the good and bad about political figures in the local news. I think he's impartial. Every candidate makes mistakes, and Rogers usually finds them and points them out in his column. Rogan may be all the good things Mr. Roe says he is, except a good congressman.

Laura Winter PHILADELPHIA -- For Rep. James Rogan (R-Burbank), the Republican National Convention was a blast. The unofficial king of congressional fund-raising, Rogan expected to collect more than just a few of his treasured political posters and buttons before leaving Philadelphia. His campaign manager, Jason Roe, expected Philadelphia 2000 to give the representative a financial boost, raising the campaign coffers by at least $55,000. "When candidates in close races have to make a decision about whether or not to come to the convention, if they decide to come to their convention, the experience must add up to a net benefit," said Jim Wilkinson, the National Republican Congressional Committee communications director.

Paul Clinton and Claudia Peschiutta BURBANK -- As the 27th Congressional District race gains steam, incumbent James Rogan (R-Burbank) appears to be cooling off, according to polling by the two camps. By his own estimates, Rogan maintains a slim lead over challenger Adam Schiff (D-Burbank). In a recent poll, Rogan had a three-point edge over Schiff, leading the Democratic state senator 42% to 39% in the hotly contested race. Rogan campaign manager Jason Roe acknowledged that with a 4% margain of error the poll could tip either way. "We could be up by seven or down by one," Roe said.

Claudia Peschiutta BURBANK -- What went around during the primary is coming around for the general election in the Rogan-Schiff congressional race. It was state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) who accused U.S. Rep. James Rogan (R-Burbank) of ducking debates before the March 7 primary. Now, the Rogan camp claims Schiff is doing the same thing. A press release sent out by the Rogan Campaign Committee Thursday claims Schiff has declined two local invitations to debate the congressman because he is scared to face his opponent.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- The opinion of a group that isn't taking sides on the Rogan-Schiff race is getting a lot of attention from both candidate's campaigns. The San Marino Police Officers' Assn. Wednesday evening withdrew its endorsement of state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) for the 27th Congressional District race after campaign officials for his opponent, U.S. Rep. James Rogan (R-Burbank), questioned the group's support.

Rogan and Schiff together at last A tip of the hat is due Rep. Jim Rogan (R-Burbank) and state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) for getting past their scheduling difficulties and philosophical differences and agreeing to debate the issues face to face. Much has been said and written -- including a critical editorial in this paper -- about the failure of the two candidates in this high-profile and tightly contested race to agree to be in the same place at the same time.
